A Modern Approach to Biofilm-Related Orthopaedic Implant Infections: Advances in Microbiology, Infectious Diseases and Public Health Volume 5 (Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology)


This book discusses Prosthetic Joint Infection (PJI), which remains one of the most common problems necessitating revision arthroplasty. It pursues a multidisciplinary approach, bringing together opinions from the leading experts in the field. The book identifies the potential causes of these infections, provides sound diagnostic criteria guidelines, and explains how these prosthetic infections are managed from orthopedic surgery, clinical and diagnostic perspectives. 

PJI can lead to multiple revision surgeries and significant patient morbidity. Periprosthetic infection rates remain around 1–2% after primary total hip and knee arthroplasty and account for approximately 7–12% of all revision cases.

Orthopedic hardware infections are much-feared and costly complications that can occur when these devices are implemented both in traumatic cases as well as in joint replacement surgery. Because these infections can lead to higher morbidity, it is important to understand their pathophysiology and the principles behind their diagnosis and initial treatment.

The pathogenesis of these kinds of infections is intimately connected to the biofilm-producing trait characteristic of many microorganisms, which can have a critical effect on the likely success of treatments.  

The book offers a unique guide for all scientists working in arthroplasty who are seeking an update on the field, and for newcomers alike.

Orthopedic Traumatology: An Evidence-Based Approach


Features: Used Book in Good Condition

Physicians are under increasing pressure to provide quality health care in the most cost-effective way possible. The escalating costs of orthopedic care are driving the need to base clinical decision making on evidence-based data that will help physicians provide optimal care to every patient. Evidence-based medicine is the future of orthopedic surgery. In a world where the quality of surgical outcomes will be increasingly measured, evidence-based data will heavily guide decision making in orthopedic trauma. Orthopedic Traumatology: An Evidence-Based Approach provides the reader with a focused and comprehensive review of the literature surrounding the management of the orthopedic trauma patient. The book centers around clinical scenarios with each chapter based on a specific case. Renowned orthopedic trauma surgeons from across the country serve as contributing authors, writing based on these scenarios and giving their expert opinions on management while using data as their guide. Each chapter describes and summarizes the data, but achieves this objective in a case-based format. Each case is brief, but includes relevant imaging. The case scenarios are heavily weighted toward treatment of more controversial injuries. As there is currently no book on the market that focuses solely on orthopedic trauma and evidence-based medicine, this book is sure to be a useful reference for residents and practicing physicians alike.

Shoulder Instability Across the Life Span


This book outlines the consensus findings of the ISAKOS Upper Extremity Committee regarding the treatment options for patients suffering from shoulder instability. The aim is to furnish readers with a precise knowledge of the presenting features of conditions typical of different ages, thereby facilitating assessment of patient characteristics and optimal treatment decision making based on the consensus of the Committee. All age groups are covered, from the very young through to the older patient. The structuring of the book essentially according to age group reflects the fact that certain forms of shoulder instability are observed at different ages. For example, while young patients tend to demonstrate instability combined with hyperlaxity, in later years, bony defects of the glenoid and humerus gain in importance. Similarly, the scope for conservative treatment varies across the life span. Each management-oriented chapter of the book includes information and guidance on anatomy, clinical examination, imaging, surgical indications and technique, rehabilitation, outcomes, and complications and their avoidance, and the text is supported by numerous high-quality illustrations.

Bone Densitometry for Technologists


Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Sydney Lou Bonnick, Lori Ann Lewis

As a technology, bone densitometry is really quite extraordinary. The ability to quantify the density of the bones at a variety of skeletal sites has truly revolutionized the approach to a number of diseases, the most important of which is osteoporosis. Using the information from the machines, especially dual-energy X ray absortiometry (DXA) technology, physicians can recommend and prescribe interventions that will slow bone loss and reduce the risk of disabling fractures. The remarkable advances in skeletal imaging with densitometry devices have made possible quantitative and diagnostic assessments of skeletal structure. However it is in fact the skill and concern of the technologist that enables all of this to happen.  In this updated and expanded third edition of their gold standard and highly praised Bone Densitometry for Technologists, Sydney Lou Bonnick, MD, FACP, and Lori Ann Lewis, MRT, CDT, again offer the most comprehensive review of the standards and developments in the field.  Here radiologic technologists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and dedicated densitometry technologists can find not only the state-of-the-art guidelines for bone density testing, but also a wide range of other topics, including several new chapters.  These include a new chapter on the performance of DXA lumbar spine, proximal femur and forearm studies; one on Using Absolute Risk to Predict Fracture Risk in Clinical Practice; and another providing examples of highly instructional DXA images in which artifacts or structural changes can be seen.  There are 2 new appendices and the other 10 appendices from the previous edition have been updated wherever necessary to reflect the most current information available.  In Appendix XII, the contents of the accompanying CD-ROM are reviewed. On this CD, readers will find the Precision Calculator Companion that was first included with the 2nd edition of Dr. Bonnick’s title, Bone Densitometry in Clinical Practice.  Questionnaires designed to capture essential information to utilize FRAX for both men and women are also included on the CD. These questionnaires can be persomalized to better suit a practice’s needs. Finally, a continuing education review is also found on the CD, which, if successfully completed, will result in the awarding of  16 hours of Category A credit acceptable to the American Society of Radiologic Technologists.
